We hope she’s okay!
On Monday, Briana Renee was rushed to the hospital in Murrieta, California after experiencing severe pain. The Little Women: LA star is six months pregnant, and was worried that the discomfort had to with her baby.
Apparently, the pain the reality star felt was because of contractions, which had doctors worried that the Lifetime alum was going into labor three months early.
A source tells People that the expecting momma is “being held until doctors can slow down her contractions, minimize her pain and/or she goes into labor.”
The insider explained the situation is serious, adding:
“She’s being closely monitored right now and prepped for possible surgery. If the surgery happens the baby has to come out, too ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ which will put everyone at risk.”
The confidante confessed that, while premature births are already risky in general, they’re even more complicated for little people, saying:
“The number one goal right now is to keep the baby from coming out. As a little person giving birth to an average-sized child, she’s already at high risk.”
The source revealed that the network has put production on pause, and “family and friends have slowly shown up to her bedside as of last night.”
The insider also added that the TV personality’s husband, Matt Ericson is “freaking out” over the scary situation:
“I’ve never seen him so distraught and beside himself.”
This is a truly terrifying thing to go through, but we hope Briana and her baby are going to be okay.
